Oral sex is leading cause of increasing U.S. cancer rates, compared to tobacco use in other nations
New York Daily News ^ | 2/22/2011 | Lindsay Goldwert

Posted on 02/23/2011 8:07:26 AM PST by Beave Meister

Oral sex could be hazardous to your health.

So say researchers who note that oral cancer stemming from the human papilloma virus is more common in the U.S. than oral cancer caused by abusing tobacco.

Researchers found a 225% increase in oral cancer cases in the U.S. from 1974 to 2007, mainly among white men, said Maura Gillison, a cancer researcher at Ohio State University.

The more oral-sex partners a man had, the greater his cancer risk, Gillison told a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Tobacco use remains the leading cause of oral cancer in the rest of the world.

There as many as 150 different types of human papilloma viruses, and about 40 of those can be sexually transmitted, according to the National Cancer Institute.

HPV infections often go undetected and are the main cause of cervical cancer in women.

Scientists are examining whether Gardasil and Cervarix, the HPV vaccines approved to prevent genital warts and cervical cancer, could have a significant impact on oral cancer.

In the meantime, researchers are urging doctors and educators to start talking to teens in particular about the risks of oral sex.

The findings of this study are politically incorrect. Expect this study to disappear from public view. We have been trained not to link any risky homosexual behaviors to spread of diseases.

Gosh, if only there was a way to fully prevent STD’s and unwanted pregnancies. I know! Let's fund a multi-billion dollar study to create new STD vaccines and new prophylactics! That is surely the answer to our problems.

And, that is the problem. Young people have decided that oral sex (yeah, it's not sex, even though "sex" is in the name) is "safe". So they do it quite a lot.

Multiple partners cause the HPV virus to spread rapidly and years later -- voila! -- mouth and throat cancer.

And, the remedy recommended by the left is to start giving young boys the vaccine, certainly we cannot recommend people change their habits.

They will use this study to prove that Planned Parenthood is needed now more than ever. Those of us with half a brain know that if PP did what it claims its purpose is, they would have put themselves out of business. But the left doesn’t look for logic, they just look for victims.

“The findings of this study are politically incorrect.”

Actually, they are very politically correct, as the study did not make clear it it was heterosexual oral sex or homosexual.

Material difference.

Doesn’t the human papilloma virus come from women? This is about men having oral sex with women.

Which sexual "orientation"? They do not say, whuch leads me to believe it is homos. If heteros, there are millions of white American wives asking "HUH? What men are GIVING oral sex? Not MY husband!"

“Doesn’t the human papilloma virus come from women? This is about men having oral sex with women.”

No, it can come from either men or women. Women just get symptoms from HPV (and cancer).

This study does seem unclear on the nature of the “transaction” — male/male or male/female.

That’s a big omission in the study, given that (for example) there is no transfer of HIV virus from female to male in normal sex, absent a pre-existing VD or injury.

What about Can'tTouchThis-a-cide, celebaticil and moralatrix. I hear that they are much more effective.

More likely this story is pimping for the new cervical cancer vaccine which might protect you from some of the viruses that might cause cervical cancer.

... oral cancer stemming from the human papilloma virus is more common in the U.S. than oral cancer caused by abusing tobacco.

This is why the government has banned oral sex in public parks.

I always wondered how people who’ve never even seen a cigarette in their lives get oral cancer.

Never thought of that.

My only regret is that I have but one life to give for the cause!

If such be the price, then gladly will I pay it!

No burden too great, no sacrifice too dear.

Neither rain nor sleet nor driving snow shall keep me from my appointed rounds.

On another note:

Oral cancer rates: 10.5/100,000.
Firearm death rate: 11.5/100,000.

I will take my chances.
